Electric Ford Focus Coming In 2011

Who killed the electric car? Well, it wasn't GM.

In fact, no one killed it. The EV-1 was born with congenital defects (severely limited range, expensive batteries) and couldn't have survived.

11 years later, technology has changed and Ford believes it can succeed where GM couldn't back in the 90s. It made the announcement Monday at the North American International Auto Show that the all-new Ford Focus will have an all-electric version beginning in 2011.

Will this get Ford the kind of eco-love usually showered upon Toyota and Honda? Time will tell.
